"Kreutzer's music is all about lyricism, purity of tone, and beauty of expression, and the only challenge it poses lies in trying to turn the CD player off, especially given as sympathetic a friend as Axel Strauss.

Rodolphe Kreutzer's final three violin concertos are among his greatest achievements as a composer.

While handling a Beethovenian orchestra with a craftsman's sure touch, it is the purity and depth of tone, energetic fire and complete technical mastery required of the soloist that set these works among the most perfect examples of the French violin concerto.

Axel Strauss, Professor of Violin at the San Francisco Conservatory of Music and heard on concert stages worldwide, has been acclaimed "an excellent violinist who plays these with wit and verve" (Limelight).

Naxos plans to record all of Kreutzer's violin concertos.
